UPDATE: Iran releases 2 Americans jailed as spies

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Two Americans jailed in Iran as spies have been released from Tehran's prison after more than two years in custody.
Associated Press reporters saw a convoy of vehicles with Swiss and Omani diplomats leaving Evin prison Wednesday with the freed Americans inside. They headed to Tehran international airport.
Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal were freed after their Iranian lawyer obtained signatures of two judges on a bail-for-freedom deal. A $1 million bail - $500,000 for each one - was posted.
